Pulled beef, smoked bacon and polenta crust pies
With winter coming it makes sense to start thinking about good hearty winter dishes to make you feel all good on the inside. These will bring the sun back on a crappy winters day. Slow cooked pulled beef, smokey bacon, creamy/crusty polenta top with a puff pastry base. A bit of a take on the classic potato top pie/cottage pie. Winter can piss off.
Cornflour paste. 2 tablespoons of cornflour with a little bit of water to make a thick paste.
Puff pastry. Buy an all butter puff pastry as it tends to be a better quality pastry.
